The second happiest country in the world was stunning Switzerland. The country was also named as the best destination for expats by the HSBC Expat Explorer survey.
Next Vacay said: “Switzerland is beautiful all year round. It is known for its natural landscapes and tantalising alpine scenery, but it is also one of the happiest destinations on earth.
“With a big focus on freedom and excellent healthcare, no wonder travellers are eager to explore and immerse themselves in the culture.”
The third happiest nation in the world was also located in Scandinavia. Finland was ranked in third place.
Next Vacay said: “Finland is the ideal destination for escaping your Monday blues.
“While the factors causing such happiness range from a high standard of living to enjoying an alcoholic beverage, it is clear Finland follows a free and relaxed way of life compared to other destinations.”
While many Britons might think of Lapland when they picture Finland, the country is also a beautiful summer destination with plenty of water to relax next to.
